Speed Workouts For Runners
When I got into running seriously, a mere two years ago, I remember running as fast as I could and realizing that I will never win a race. I am okay with this but with everything in life there is room for improvement.
I really haven’t worked on my speed much this year even though I know I need the work in order to simply get better at running. My competitive side simply does not activate when it comes to running, since it’s more therapeutic than a sport for me. However, it would be nice to get a bit faster and spend less time on my feet when I train.
Lately as I brave the summer heat indoors on the treadmill for marathon training, I have been getting more comfortable with pushing the speed up for short intervals of time. I put on one of my favorite workout songs and go for it! Check out my workout below which can be done outside or on a treadmill:
